Welcome, one and all, to day seven of the 30 Day Gaming Challenge. Today’s challenge is … Favourite Game Couple. This one is a little easier for me because I have two clear favourite gaming couples.
First up, we have Tifa Lockhart and Cloud Strife (FFVII). Sorry Aeris/Aerith fans, but as far as I’m concerned, Tifa and Cloud were made for each other. Throughout FFVII, I was waiting for that definitive moment that they got together. Yes, I know that the scene under the Highwind doesn’t 100% confirm it, but it’s enough for me. I hear that the novels also elaborate on their relationship a little. Regardless though, I ship these two.
Master Chief and Cortana (Halo) are perhaps a little cleaner cut in terms of being a couple. I think that most people can agree that these two are romantically entangled, and that’s great as far as I’m concerned. Yes, they’re an odd couple given that one is a holographic AI, but ya know what? They’re a cute couple.
